Her death came less than two months after her latest release from a rehabilitation program and weeks following a disastrous performance where she was booed off a Belgrade, Serbia, stage by disappointed fans.
Winehouse died at the same age as four other music legends. Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison each died of drug overdoses when they were 27. Kurt Cobain was 27 when he committed suicide, soon after his release from rehab.
Police called the death “unexplained” early in their investigation.
London police said they were called to a home, which matches Winehouse’s address, Saturday afternoon in response to “a woman found deceased.”
“On arrival officers found the body of a 27-year-old female who was pronounced dead at the scene,” a police statement said.
Winehouse spokesman Chris Goodman confirmed her death for CNN Saturday.
“Everyone who is involved with Amy is shocked and devastated,” Goodman said. “Our thoughts are with her family and friends. The family will issue a statement when ready.”
Its a damn shame when you know someone is going to die young but there is nothing anyone can do about it because that person lives to close to the end and wont stop no matter what you tell them. Are you really surprise?
